The IDI serves as the global capacity building body within INTOSAI. Its mission is to support SAIs in developing countries to sustainably enhance their performance and capacities. Thus, the IDI is uniquely placed to deliver support under this TA in enhancing the performance audit capacity of SAIs in Asia and the Pacific. Since its establishment in 1986, the IDI's work has benefited SAIs from over 140 developing countries. The IDI also works with other development partners and is tasked with achieving the objectives of the memorandum of understanding between INTOSAI and the donor community, of which ADB is a signatory.
